Right now, racers are laser-focused on landing a spot on the team that represents their track at the NHRA North Central Division Summit Racing Series Team Finals, and enthusiasm is escalating as the event moves from its previous longtime home of Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park in Indiana to Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.

The prestigious race is set for Sept. 11-15, 2024 at America’s Racetrack, and making it even more rewarding, winners will advance to the NHRA Nevada Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to race toward a world championship.
